Undertones

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Undertones - Positive Touch Positive Touch
Pop New - LP ST 12159 Harvest
Sealed 1981 Embossed Cover Original, Tiny Saw Cut. 4 1/2 Stars. “The Undertones' Third Album Is A Marked Departure From The Speedy Pop-Punk Of Their First Two. The Buzzcocks-Derived Ramalama Is Almost Entirely Gone, Replaced By A More Varied And Softer Instrumental Palette That Features New Textures Like Piano (Courtesy Of Paul Carrack, Then In Squeeze) And Trumpet. Oddly, The New Arrangements, When Mixed With Feargal Sharkey's Tightly Wound Vocals, Have The Effect Of Actually Increasing The Tension. Even Tender, Largely Acoustic Tunes Like The Lovely "Julie Ocean" Have An Undercurrent Of Anxiety, And Faster Tracks Like The Pounding Opener "Fascination" And The Near-Paranoid "His Goodlooking Girlfriend" Are Downright Nerve-Wracking. The Combination Is Best Heard In The Panicky "Crisis Of Mine" And The Sardonic "Life's Too Easy," Two Of The Album's Better Tracks, But Even The Buzzy "Hannah Doot," One Of The Few Songs That Sounds Like It Would Fit On The Undertones' Earlier Albums, Is Enhanced By The Nervy Production.” Stewart Mason, AMG.... more details
